The Department of Journalism at The University of Memphis also offers an online Master of Arts degree in journalism.
The program serves students seeking graduate studies to support careers in advertising, print and broadcast journalism, Internet journalism, and public relations/strategic communication.
The department was perhaps the first in the country to offer a master’s degree in journalism online. That was in 1995.
The program is intended to serve two types of students: practicing journalists/media professionals with experience in the business who, for one reason or another, are unable to take courses in the traditional way; and individuals in other professions who are seeking to make a career change.
Online graduate students meet in real time in a Web voice chat room. This form of instruction is referred to as “synchronous.”
Please email Dr. Rick Fischer for more information about the online M.A. program.
